Bayern Munich were expecting to go into the second leg of their Champions League tie against Real Madrid with a lead and a good chance of coming away with a big win and a place in the semifinals. That didn’t happen, of course, thanks to a second-half collapse and a sending off last week that’s left Bayern’s defense looking dangerously thin.
Javi Martinez is on the shelf with a suspension thanks to being sent off after a pair of sloppy and unnecessary fouls in the first leg of this tie. Furthermore, thanks to several injuries on the back line, Carlo Ancelotti may have to get creative in setting up his defense on Tuesday. With Jerome Boateng missing out at the weekend with a slight groin injury and Mats Hummels only just becoming available again after an ankle injury, it looks like Bayern are going to be working with a patchwork arrangement in central defense.
Of course, Real Madrid are hardly at full health in defense themselves, with both Pepe and Raphael Varane missing out with injuries, as well as Gareth Bale missing from their attack with another calf injury. There’s also the question of just how fit Cristiano Ronaldo is — he was noticeably limping at the end of the first leg, and sat out at the weekend as a precautionary measure. It seems like the story of this match is going to be about which team can overcome adversity better, because neither team is quite in the position they want to be in — though Real Madrid will definitely be excited to see how well they can hold onto their 2-1 aggregate lead.
